When a cat finds a good hiding place, she feels safer and more comfortable than in open space. No wonder they like to find places in our homes that hide their location. They can sleep peacefully and dream of catching a mouse instead of being a mouse. In her little cat "cave" (whether it's a box, a bag, under a bed or hidden in a closet), a cat can quickly master a very small area, fill it with her scent and create a safe place for herself. Cats living in homes with multiple people, small children, other animals will often look for those safe places to "be alone" that we ourselves need from time to time! In addition, all kinds of hiding places are very important for those cats that are new to the environment or are just starting to communicate with people or animals.
In such cases, cats need a safe place. Being in an open space, which means being vulnerable, can be stressful and scary for a cat. It is considered normal when insufficiently socialized kittens will hide, say, under the bed. In fact, that's why we think that providing them with safe shelters will be a great help in adapting cats.
